Yeah, okay, I’ve decided to go on a hiatus for a bit. Tumblr has always been a fucked up place, but that fox post has shown me that people on here can be legitimately dangerous. So…I don’t know how long I’ll be gone. I know that I’ve recently gotten some new followers, and I’m sorry that I’m leaving so suddenly, but right now I’m so stressed out with everything on here that I worry for my mental health. I’ll be back…soon, maybe, and hopefully, this site will get better…which I doubt.
How Tumblr got an exotic fox killed.
From reddit user /u/Aeviegh:
Several days ago, a fellow fox owner and dear friend received an anonymous message through Tumblr threatening to report Vader as a vicious animal. Unfortunately, these threats are something nearly every exotic pet owner has experienced. Thinking it was just another internet crazy, she deleted the message. Like many foxes, Vader had never left his home property for anything other than a vet trip. One would assume in order to file a report, you would need some proof. Apparently that isn’t the case in North Dakota.
Last night, animal control officers and local police showed up at her door and, without a warrant, seized Vader. The reason given was that they had received an “anonymous bite report”. The person who physically took Vader was not a trained animal control officer, but rather a local cop. Wearing thick gloves, he cornered Vader and picked him up by the scruff of the neck. The cop had previously been advised multiple times on how to properly handle Vader (or any animal, for that matter) but decided to disregard the advice not only of his owner, but animal control officers as well. Out of fear, Vader bit his glove but did not puncture the material. Staff at Animal Control reported he was wagging his tail whenever he was fed and being friendly with everyone who interacted with him.
Vader’s owner made several calls to the North Dakota Board of Animal Health, Department of Health and local police department. All three assured her because they had no proof of punctured flesh in either incident, and that the cop had horrifically botched the seizure, Vader would be safe and they were just holding him to make sure he wasn’t exhibiting signs of any contagious diseases. A few hours ago, the police showed up with Vader’s collar. Animal Control had euthanized him without a hearing or proper medical screening, stating that they had evidence that the person from the Tumblr report had legitimately been bitten.
The “evidence” the animal rights activist from Tumblr submitted was a photo of an animal bite either doctored or taken straight from Google.
Tumblr….really? I know there are a lot (a LOT) of fuckheads on this site but this is a new low. This is absolutely sadistic and is complete abuse of the anonymity system this site so graciously provides.
I don’t care who did it, I want to know why. I mean, congratulations! You won! The fox got euthanized! GG, bro(ette)! In my eyes, this has become honestly the ultimate scumhole of the internet (even /b/ is starting to fall behind). Anon hate, keyboard warriors, bigoted arguments, people who can’t admit they’ve done wrong, absolute NUTJOBS who somehow have the audacity to say they’re “for equality” and now this.
I’m fucking done with this site. No, really. I’m done with it. This is absolutely wrong.
Oh, before I forget, here’s a picture of Vader.
I take it all back.
I said I was done on a previous reblog, but now…now I just feel an empty void in my soul.
Tumblr has stooped so low as to get someone’s pet killed.
A living, breathing animal that did no harm to anyone got taken away from its owner and was euthanized for no good reason.
Why did this happen? It doesn’t matter. Most likely that anon disagreed with the owner over a minor thing and decided the best way to get back at them was to kill their pet. Considering that this website has no problem sending death threats to people as young as 13 for making honest mistakes, I wouldn’t be surprised if that were the case.
And now this brings up a very important question: If the people on this site have no moral conflict with getting someone’s pet killed, how long will it take before an actual person gets murdered? Look at how most people on here react when someone has a different opinion from theirs. I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if someone took the next step further, especially since a lot of people get doxxed and have their personal information posted online.
I can’t stand to look at this. This is honestly making me think about deleting my blog, or at the very least, go on a very long hiatus.
